Go to enough tournaments and you see a lot of hospitality rooms/gatherings for fans of individual college hockey teams. Excluding your own favorite college what other group have you found to be the most outgoing and friendly bunch?

In my experiences, the Colgate and Quinnipiac pep bands.

Assuming you mean MTU, I have to second that. They were VERY nice people when I saw them at the GLI a few years back.

Not Union... If their alumni association staff is the measure.

Nothing against you guys on the boards... But don't invite us to a party that you don't have permission to give :mad:

They play in a DOT salt building, give TSA-like patdowns, and their mall cops are abusive. They'd be top of the list if the title of this thread was "The Worst".

Yeah... I shouldn't have posted that but what's done is done... I'm still griping from the regionals. I would think if you set up a networking session then you wouldn't necessarily mind networking with some like minded (hockey) interlopers.

As a BU fan, I admire the passion and committment UNH fans have for their team and the program.

Minnesota

Anchorage second

we've been treated nicely at most arenas - CC, the Ralph, Bemidji, the Kohl, Mankato, Omaha, LSSU, Lakehead (Thunder Bay Canada - very very nice people).

the only two arenas I really don't like is DU (for a variety of reasons) and St, Clooud.

Minnesota

we've been treated nicely at most arenas...Cornell fans were not treated well at Mariucci, by the staff nor the fans. Of course, we tend to be obnoxious pr!cks, so that may have had something to do with it. :)

Not Harvard, although one of our gang did infiltrate the inner sanctum and was visciously shunned due to his Yale sweater, he did manage to down a cold one before being bounced.:D

Which part of the crowd treated you badly? In my younger days, when booze and girls dominated my thoughts, we loved going to Mariucci because the Minnesota coeds were so obviously deprived of real men. In fact we found that to be true of just about all Minnesota schools.

When you're Cornell, being treated nicely at the hockey game just doesn't happen. Being "obnoxious pr!cks" is putting it nicely, but they're equal opportunity offenders.

UNO fans have been great at the 2011 regional in St Louis, in Omaha and in Colorado Springs. I'm also a fan of the UAA peeps.

Due to geographic and $$ constraints, the opportunities for this are limited, however...

A good way to experience another fan base is to attend one of their games as a neutral. I'm not talking about bandwagon jumping for a night. Just wear your own school's jersey, and go in with a reasonably positive attitude. For the most part, the low IQ types won't bother with you; their concern is the opponent du jour. But the quality fans will notice and be genuinely curious as to why you're there -- likely leading to some interesting conversations.

As just one example, I had the opportunity to attend a UW/UAA game in Madison a number of years ago. It was a great time all around.

On another front, let me echo what other posters have said about fans from MTU, and extend it to the U.P. generally. They are indeed very welcoming.
